On Friday, the 17th of May, the City of Fredericksburg formally approved of the language for the city charter amendment, and called for a special election where the voters of Fredericksburg will be able to vote on ending fluoridation of the city’s water supply. The election will take place on 11/5/19. Here’s the official language:
ORDER OF SPECIAL ELECTION FOR
CITY OF FREDERICKSBURG, TEXAS
(ORDEN DE ELECCIÓN ESPECIAL PARA
CIUDAD DE FREDERICKSBURG, TEXAS)
An election is hereby ordered to be held on November 5, 2019 for the purpose of:
City Charter amendment to add Sec. 11.12, as set forth below:
“Sec. 11.12. – Fluoridation of Public Water Supply Prohibited.
The City of Fredericksburg, including its departments, agents, and contractors, SHALL NOT FLUORIDATE THE PUBLIC WATER SUPPLY or accept any fluoridated water for use in the City of Fredericksburg public water system, including but not limited to the addition of Hydrofluorosilicic acid, Hexafluorosilicic Acid, Sodium Siliocofluoride, or any other fluoride derivative. The City of Fredericksburg shall not purchase, install, or allow the installation of fluoridation equipment to be used in relation to the City of Fredericksburg municipal water supply or its distribution system. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section, the City may accept and use naturally occurring fluoridated water in the City of Fredericksburg public water system.”
This is a big development for us and it signals that our time to reach out to the community is upon us. We’ll be having a formal get together, Texas style, with BBQ and free drinks, where you can meet the Clean Water Fred Team and win some great raffle prizes. We’ll announce it here and on our Facebook page.
Tonight’s meeting will take place here:
